I don't know what it is about "Vintage" that excites me so much.
Could it be the various rustique colours? the blending & difusing of the different shades?
or is it simply all these amazing techniques specialised craftsmen use to have that don't exist anymore for us to find - what a shame!  Although I DO use technology a lot and it is rather handy, I will have to admit that I miss the days when people use to enjoy making something & talking about it with friends & family, instead of only caring about what new phone/laptop to buy. I remember when I was a child back then, how excited I was when I was offered a Minnie Mouse embroidery pattern to embroider myself. Was so proud when I finished it too ...
Anyway, as you probably guessed right, today was Vintage making & I made quite a few mini & medium calendars for the New Year.  I am attaching a few photos of them & would love to hear your comments on them.
Hope you have a lovely evening,
Speak soon ;)







Hey there friends,
I've spent the past few days thinking of what other essentials I would like to make in view of Christmas and decided that I should go ahead with a creative Stamping afternoon.
So many stamps, ink pads, paper & baker's twine, what could I possibly use them for?
How about gift tags! Yeah! Gift Tags it is then ...
So, I turned on the music, spread out all the Christmas stamps & ink pads on my desk , and started out by cutting loads & loads of tags.

And then as I started stampin', along came creativity & loads of imagination!
This is what I came up with ...

Baker's twine is next, so will leave you for tonight cause I must continue all this threading.

I wish you all a lovely evening,
Speak soon :)

Thursday 18th October, 2012

Good afternoon to all,

It's been a beautiful sunny day & a very warm afternoon here in Greece today.
I am beginning to strongly believe that all this financial crisis is taking place because the northern part of Europe envies us for our amazing climate!

Anyhow, I have been trying to get my blog active for the past few weeks, have sort of finalized it somehow today, so would love to see you join it & add your comments too.

Keep visiting for more new stuff to come ... very soon ...
much love
